Roman Reigns’ Bloodline storyline turned WWE’s product around and brought the wrestling business into a boom period.

Every show is sold out with energetic crowd, and even untelevised Live Events / House Shows are doing good numbers.

On Busted Open Radio, The Undertaker noted that he really wanted to wrestle a match in WWE’s current era, because it is very close to the Attitude Era business-wise, but he’s good after the moment he had at WrestleMania 40.

Here’s what The Deadman said:

“When we did the cinematic match (at WrestleMania 36), it was almost a relief because obviously that match was supposed to happen in a stadium. It was gonna be a regular match and in my mind I was thinking this isn’t Shawn (Michaels) but this is really close to Shawn and I was thinking about the match that we could have. The only reason I was gonna have that match is because I never worked with AJ (Styles).

Then obviously the pandemic happens and now I’m thinking about having this match in an empty warehouse and it was really deflating and then the cinematic aspect comes in there and I’m like wow, now we have an opportunity to do something special and something that people have never seen. I was really proud of that part that we were able to do something that was different.

Edge and Orton had one hell of a match that deserved to have people see it. It was incredible. I always looked at it as being fortunate to be able to do that match that way. I have stated since I retired that I’ve struggled. I knew that the body made the decision for me.

In my mind and in my heart, there’s nothing that I’d rather do than be able to get in the ring and still go, especially in this era which is so close to, as far as business-wise, the Attitude Era.

Just to see everything going on in the business… I would have to leave sometimes. I was at the Rumble in Florida this year and when the matches started I left. It was just that hard for me because my mind is telling me you should be getting ready.

When I came [backstage after WrestleMania 40], I had a sense of calm and a sense of I’m good now. Now I gotta figure out what the hell is next for sure.”
